Wall Flower


Still in a vintage mood, and luckily creators lately seem to be putting out quite a bit of retro inspired clothing items so it works out great for me!
I got my skirt May C88 from Tres Blah and it is so cute! It even has like a little petticoat under it for added fullness. It was hard to decide when pattern to get, I wanted them all!
My top is an adorable off the shoulder cropped top from Tee*fy at June C88. I got it in yellow and then had to go back to get it in a few other colors and I think I might go get a few more before C88 switches over too.
I had had on white shoes when first put the outfit together, but I felt I needed a bit more color. What luck I found they cute wedge sandals from Fri.day at Summerfest in the perfect shade of red! I just love their look, I might end up getting them in another color or two as well before the even is up.

Summer Sherbert


I like pastels and wear them often no matter when, but something about Spring and Summer really makes me want to dress in pastels and bright colors all the time. Something also make me slap on as many different colors as I can in Summer too. As long as they are all pastels they all go together, right?

These were some of my favorite items I picked up last round of C88, but never blogged because I have been going crazy looking for the right place to take a picture. Nothing was calling to me. I wanted a retro feel and the search made me realize SL is REALLY lacking in retro inspired sims. I ended up just taking the picture in a vintage camper I got some Arcade ago.
I love love love this top from Tres Blah, so much I did get it in another color as well. It’s so cute with it’s little bow and polka dots. Though I do hope Tres Blah will maybe sometime make a non dotted version.
The high waisted jeans in pink from Tee*fy seemed the obvious bottom for my teal top. But when it came to finding shoes for my outfit I had some set backs. I know these shoes look perfect and match almost exactly, but they were not my first choice. Not because they are not cute shoes because they are totally adorable. But they are for the high slink foot. I did not have that foot and kinda thought it looked odd and painful. I went everywhere trying to find a similar feel in a shoe made for the mid foot, but had no luck. I gave in and bought the high foot so I could wear these shoes from Fri.day (also from last C88). I still think the high foot looks odd and painful, but it’s not so bad if there is a back strap around the heel at least in my eye.

Turtle Beach


There were so many things I wanted to blog from last month’s Collaber88 and I just did not get to them in time!. I put together a bunch of outfits, but then could not find places I to take pictures that completed the vision I had in my head. And then I got a new job in RL! That’s been taking a lot of my plus my scheduling is just all over the place.

I guess procrastinating worked out for this outfit! I found the hair at the June Collaber88 and my little turtle from is from June Arcade (which is almost over!) I also got my adorable froggy flip flops at the Arcade from Erratic. They are so cute they make me wish I could wear flip flops in RL and had a pair just like them.

Bon Appetit


I’m a sucker for a retro inspired dress, so it was a no brainer when I saw The Secret Store Dress at this month’s Collaber88. It made me feel so pretty and girly and like I wanted to strap on an apron and bake a cake… very Donna Reed.
I finished off the look with these cute Sophia heels from Ingenue and swept up half do from Lamb, both also at this month’s Collaber88.

Fox Friend


I just can’t seem to resist these adorable animal friends Birdy/Alchemy keep putting out! They make such a great team, can’t wait to see what is next.

There were lots of great things at this month’s Collaber88, I hope everyone got a chance to check it out.
This dress from U.F.O is one of my favorite from this round (one of.. there were many). It was so hard to choose a which sweater color to get so I ended up getting this lovely minty color. I think I might get another in yellow or grey, I have not decided yet. I wish there had been a fat pack HUD for the sweater. I simply could not at all choose which HUD pattern pack to get for the dress itself so I just got the fat pack of them all.

Fluffy Flowers


It was love at first sight when I saw this dress from Tres Blah and the current round of Collaber88. I don’t think I even bothered to demo it, I just bought! It comes in a couple other patterns as well as plain white and a plain black. I am pretty sure I will be going back to get the black one as well before the month is over.
I picked up these cute heels with bow detail just a few stalls down from Friday. I also bought them in a pale petal almost white color. They are just so cute and I see a lot of uses for them this Spring and Summer.
I also go my hair at C88 from Clawtooth. There are too styles from Clawtooth, this one with the side ponytail and one with the same bangs, but a side knot dealy thing. Unfortunately I only had money for one of them otherwise I would have gotten both. They are really cute and i think my two favorite styles to date from Clawtooth.

Dizzy Had A Little Lamb


Nothing says Spring more than a cute flower dress and a baby lamb if you ask me! I was feeling especially Spring-y this week in this cute skirt and off the shoulder top I got at C88 from Tee*fy. It worked really well with the Oxford heels The Secret Store was offering which is awesome because I LOVE the shoes and was dying to wear them. C88 is just about done for this round so you better get down there to see if there is anything you missed.

I have been really bad this month. I have yet another new skin. Damn that Skin Fair! *shakes fist*
This is Emma from Essences and I could not get it off my mind. At first I was not going to get it because I had gotten a few others, but I kept thinking about it and putting the demo on.
I have been so lost for a skin since Dutch Touch stopped making skins. I would still wear Dutch Touch (and proudly did until just a 3 months ago), but since becoming a Slink mesh hand and feet convert I only wear skins with appliers. I know I can manually match the tone, but it doesn’t look the same as it does with the actual skin applied to the mesh. I have tearfully set aside my Dutch Touch skins, still hoping one day Iki will come back even if just to make appliers, and started searching for a new skin.
It’s been really hard. I wore Dutch Touch for YEARS non stop, I came to feel I was not me if I was not in my Dutch Touch skin and so now nothing feels like me. Then I put on this new Essences Emma skin and I see elements to it that drew me to DT skins too. This is the most me I have felt since taking off my DT skin. Emma has a cute little button like nose and a really great shape to her mouth, she is just beautiful. This is my favorite skin to come from Essences yet!
